Co-op dungeon crawler Blightbound is coming to Steam Early Access next week, but before it gets there you’ll have a chance to try it out for yourself, for free. Publisher Devolver Digital announced today that the game will be available to all in an open beta set to run on Steam from July 24-26.

Blightbound is an interesting mashup of other games and genres—”an RPG chimera,” as we put it in our recent preview. “There’s some Streets of Rage-style brawler action mixed in with a dash of old-school exponential Diablo numbers grinding,” wrote Luke Winkie. “The art style brings to mind Darkest Dungeon and Oxygen Not Included—a lot of grimdark, graphic-novel heavy lines—but strategically, players are looking at interlocking synergies and Ultimate timers, akin to a MOBA.”
